    • “Thank you for your incredibly informative session at our National Sales Conference! I’ve read every sales book available and none of them have been able to give me as much direction with my sales calls in as little time as your seminar.  You have a great talent of condensing decades worth of sales training into a relatively short period and I truly believe that differentiates you from the pack. You have a real enthusiasm for helping others and it shows.”

    • “The Ignite Excellence methodology provided me with real world skills and insights allowing me to grow a small opportunity into a substantial deal with a Texas based retailer in my first year of software sales.  The program taught me how to bring out the client’s pains and get them to share with me their vision. Once I fully understood their concerns, I was able to present a 5-year implementation strategy with a variety of software products and services  – it’s all about the customer! As a result, I won “Rookie of the Year”.

    • “I have been a sales professional for over 25 years and taken several training program over my career. Although skeptical when before taking Perception Selling, I am happy to report that I believe I am having more meaningful and productive meetings with my clients.  I believe it will result in better relationships with my top clients and increased sales and income for myself. I recommend the program to the seasoned sales professional and the rookie – I  wish this course was available when I started my career over 25 years ago. Well done Suzanne!”

    • “I have been in the financial industry since 1999 and have taken countless sales training since then. None of my previous training experiences come even close to the quality, relevance and uniqueness of the trainings offered by Ignite Excellence and delivered by Suzanne Stevens.  She goes well above and beyond in terms of researching our industry, lingo, challenges, clients and relevant researches/data related to our business. It was so personal it is next to impossible not to be connecting with her from beginning to end. ”

The three days were chockfull of very useful information, which I was able to immediately apply to begin benefiting from more effective management of my client base. The subjects covered were always presented in a very interesting way which made the retention level outstanding!
